Currently it is a requirement to keep timesheets for EC FP 7 Awards and NIH Awards (where a person is not charged 100% to the grant). As part of the Transparent Approach to Costing (TRAC) Update no.3 issued by RCUK, from 1 December 2010 it will be a requirement to keep timesheets for all Research Council awards for Directly Incurred (DI) staff who are not contracted 100% to a single project. Directly Allocated staff and pooled labour do not need to complete timesheets for RCUK awards.

The guidance given by RCUK includes:

  • Timesheets to be completed monthly and promptly
  • Timesheets to be completed for each month that the member of staff works on the project
  • Timesheets to be completed by the individual and signed by their manager
  • Timesheets to show all productive hours (not just the hours spent on the project)
